What specifically does the curator team of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art write about the artwork painted by Moretto da Brescia? (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Moretto’s portrait asserts an active engagement with the viewer through the parapet decorated with a carpet and hourglass (an emblem of the passage of time and thus of mortality) as well as through the sitter’s pose and glance. Moretto knew the portraits of Titian, but also those of another Venetian artist, Lorenzo Lotto, whose work was directly inspired by the example of Dürer. The suggestion of a vibrant, living presence is a unifying goal of sixteenth-century portraiture north and south of the Alps. Brescia, situated in the foothills of the Alps, was a locus of this enriching dialogue.
